American soldiers stationed in the UK gained firsthand experience with the charms of British sports cars. After the war ended, they brought home their memories, and in some cases, their cars. The MG TC was the first postwar MG and 10,000 units were produced from 1945 to 1949. It shared the same 1,250cc 54.5 hp engine as the pre-war TB. The TC was built with export in mind, although all examples produced were right-hand drive and U.S. models were virtually identical to the home market TCs except for chrome bumpers and smaller U.S.-spec headlights. This example is finished in red with tan leather interior and a tan vinyl top. It is complemented by silver painted wire wheels, a rear-mounted spare and sharp blackwall tires. The engine has an aluminum valve cover and side cover as well as an aftermarket oil filter for added reliability. A single fog light is mounted on its badge bar, fender mirrors add style and safety and a winged Motometer radiator cap visually sets it apart from other TCs. The interior is fitted with seat belts and it is complete with its jack and side curtains. The pretty wooden dash is accented by a banjo spoke steering wheel. The paint presents well as do the chrome and interior. It is ready to go, presents well and is a car that its owner will be proud to display at the end of a day's tour. With its large diameter wire wheels and classic radiator, this excellent touring car will provide an experience similar to those had by our returning soldiers and bring an old world feel to an enjoyable weekend's driving.
